Firestorm 2007

That lovely pink glow in the West Hollywood afternoon sky isn't the sunset, that's Malibu. The fluffy greyness above it is smoke. We are being told that if we have to go out, try not to breathe.

But I am lucky, I have a home to go to.

The LA Times has a fund started where they, KTLA and the McCormick Tribune Foundation will match donations (.50 on the dollar) at least up to $500,000 for relief. According to the Publisher, all funds will go to people left homeless by the fires- they are paying the administrative costs so every dime goes to the victims of this tragedy. If you have a few spare dollars, please donate. Contrary to opinion pieces in some of the gamier portions of the media, not every victim in this is Barbra Streisand.
